Review of 101 West End Avenue by Carter Horsley

This handsome, 33-story, twin-towered apartment building at 101 West End Avenue between 64th and 65th Streets was built in 2000 by Tishman Speyer Properties, one of the city's most distinguished real estate concerns whose properties include Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building, and then sold to Archstone and then to Equity Residential. 

It has 503 rental apartments. 

It was designed by Schuman Lichtenstein Claman & Efron. 

The building is on a former site of a printing plant for The New York Times that was built in 1959.

It is to the east of Donald Trump’s sprawling Riverside South development, the lower half of which he sold to Extell Development, that stretches north to 71st Street and that has several twin-towered buildings.  

It faces a park bounded by West End Avenue, Thelonious Monk Circle and 63th and 64th Streets that is bounded by twin-towered apartment buildings on three sides.

The inspiration for the twin-tower buildings comes from the famous Art-Deco Period apartment skyscrapers on Central Park West such as the San Remo, the Majestic and the Century. 

It is close to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.  

Bottom Line

One of three similar twin-tower apartment buildings surrounding a pleasant small park near the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.



The main entrance has a two-story red-granite entrance surround with a canopy with an indented and curved window on the second story. 

The light-orange-brick building has an impressive circular lobby with a silver leaf ceiling and many corner balconies. 

The towers are setback slightly and have a 6-floor section between them and a one-story, windowed mechanical setback top. 

It has discrete air-conditioners and no sidewalk landscaping.



The building has a doorman, a concierge, a live-in superintendent, valet parking, a health club with half-court basketball, a children’s playroom, a carriage room, a laundry, a bicycle room and private storage.  It is pet-friendly.
